Gold Heads for 17% Gain In First Half 2020 and Biggest Quarterly Gain Since 2016


Gold bullion appears set for the biggest quarterly advance since 2016 amid a surge in demand for gold bullion and other safe haven assets due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak and economic lockdowns, which show little signs of abating.

Gold bullion has gradually eked out a 17% gain in dollars so far in 2020 as risk assets, especially stock markets, fall sharply. Gold has gained nearly 18% in euros and by 25% in British pounds as the UK economy has the worst contraction since 1979.

Gold is now the top performing asset in the world as the health crisis prompts a wave of stimulus, fiscal spending and bail outs from governments and central banks as they desperately tried to minimize the damage to an already very fragile global economy.

Investors also continue to diversify into gold bullion coins and bars in vaults globally and into gold backed exchange traded funds (ETFs), with holdings at a record.
